Summary: This camera is perfect for my business. I sell RVs and needed a easy to use, wide angle lens, so that you can see more of the interior of the RV for our Web-listings. The Shots that I take outside, of the exteriors, are not as good, but would be perfect for wide shots or scenic views. I will probably just use this one for interiors and my other point and shoot camera, with a regular lens, for exterior shots of the RVs.
Summary: I've only had my camera about a month, but am so far extremely pleased. I was totally amazed when I took a photo of a flowering plant that was blowing in the breeze giving it a back and forth arc of about 2 inches of movement. The photo turned out very clear with no blurring at all. I took the pic while testing the camera and did not expect this result. Definitely a 5 star or even better, in my opinion.
Summary: Without getting into all the tech details about this camera, I just want to say it is perfect for my grip, wonderful panoramic viewing screen, and just what I wanted! Oh, great pictures and a satisfying performance! I'm going to buy another one!
Excerpt: The Lumix FX78 is a appealing, sophisticated and truly a marvelous piece of machinery. It is nothing short of Genius. The FX78 is a small and light shirt pocket camera you can carry with you all the time, At The Ready, without being burdensome, and actually you don’t even notice you are carrying it. I have been using it now for about a week, and these are my initial impressions.
Excerpt: This is an excellent product for taking pictures and shooting movies. You can shoot Half HD (720p) directly in MOV file. The image focus and stabilisation work great. Pictures are of great quality thanks to the Leica 1:2.5-5.9f lens. You can shoot decent pictures even with less light, which is useful if you want to take a close up of a baby without the flash. I personally prefer taking pictures at the maximum resolution 12Mpixels in the 4:3 format.
